I have two 50 ohm characteristic impedance cables of which I need to shorten their length to compact my design. (put everything in to a box)
The cables I need to shorten are the GPS & GSM antenna cables.
I do not know if I can cut it from 12cm off the antenna and join it to the 50 ohm characteristic impedance . Currently each is about 3.5m.
Neither antennas have a LNA nor a SAW filters.
If I cut it off near the receiver and solder it to the 50ohm characteristic impedance cable coming off from my PCB, would that create any problems?
